As VRFocus has previously reported, the Monstercat Music Pack Vol. 1 features ten songs which Steam users can either purchase individually for £1.69 GBP each – for a total of £16.90 – or simply buy the entire bundle for £11 for a 35 percent saving. PlayStation VR users can pick up the entire pack for £9.99.
Both stores also have a secondary bundle for those that don’t currently own the main title. They’re able to purchase Beat Saber + Monstercat Music Pack Vol. 1 for £24.32 on Steam and £32.99 on PlayStation Store. Oculus Rift users on Oculus Store will have to wait a little while longer, with Beat Games stating on Twitter: “Dear Oculus players, we have this update ready for you and it’s gonna be released in Oculus Store as soon as possible!”
There have been reports that the in-game button for buying the DLC isn’t working for PC players which the team is working on: “somehow the button is not working now, we will fix it. You can buy pack on Steam directly in the meantime.”
As a little bonus for PC users, their version now matches up with the PlayStation VR version, with the long-awaited Campaign and all 5 tracks from OST Vol. 2 now available.
In addition to the new DLC, Beat Games and Monstercat are running a special promotion. Monstercat is offering a free month of its Gold Pass to new subscribers who use the promo code “BEATSABER.”
Even though this is going to please a lot of Beat Saber players, many – especially those on PlayStation VR – might have been after a little bit more variety in the types of songs available. Well it seems as though the studio is planning on doing just that with the next packs, responding to a Twitter user asking them to branch out: “Don’t worry, we have it covered with the genres of the next packs. ;)”
VRFocus will continue its coverage of Beat Saber, reporting back with further updates.
